Byrne JAG funds support planning and implementation to expand Family Justice Centers (FJCs) in 5 new communities (Nashville, Chattanooga, Cookeville, Johnson City, and the City of Jackson). FJCs serve as a comprehensive support center by co-locating services for victims of crime. Typical services include those provided by law enforcement, prosecutors, court, civil legal services and social service professionals. These sites were further supported through a training and technical assistance Byrne JAG grant to the Knoxville FJC.
